Designed by Darwin Bromley. Published 1990 by Mayfair Games. For 2-6 players. Express is a kind of rummy game with a train theme. Players start with a one-car train and build on their meld to maximize points and bonuses. But players must be wary of train wrecks and derailments. You draw cards into your hand in order to make trains which score points. These are laid out in front of you with a loco with carriages, trucks and cabooses forming a scoring train. There are special cards such as breakdown trains, engineer cars and so on that give you scope to steal opponents cards or fight off such attacks.
